Solidarity with Greek people!
I hope this will finally be the chance for a nation to become leftist and promote internationalism through stopping the exploitation of the working class and get rid of the fear of change in the world.
I hope so too… But, you know what is disgusting me right now? That KKE wants also Syriza to fall… as our reactionary governments here in the Iberian Peninsula (Portugal and España)! If you wait for the right moment for the revolution, it will never come (Rosa Luxemburg). It is happening just like in Venezuela after the Caracazo: Chavez once even realized and (actually said it in public look up on youtube) that he isn’t going to fight with the Leninists… Why this constant Mercader/Trotsky stupid hostility on the Left (from PART TO PART)? As a left communist, I simply can’t stand it! It’s more like unite the right to smash the Left into so tiny pieces that we can’t even know what we were to begin with. Divide to conquer, which is a hell of a lesson.
Also, The New Left is dead. Marxism-Leninism is buried. Anarchists are now post-structuralists. Trotskyites turned out to be left radical-social democrats. So what will you do? Become a necromancer, submit to reactionary temptations, or… start thinking from zero?
I was just going to watch a few minutes of that but ended up watching the whole thing and even rewinding some parts.
There are some important things there, but my no1 is at 57.59, when someone asks about the sacred role in politics and also, the role of Christianity, as an Ontological FORM of Global Politics (or the “constitution of” Politics if you wish). The response cannot be other than (at least for us here): Communism as such will be the ultimate form of politics, as Christianity was for Religion, meanings that trough Christianity you erase all ancient forms of superstition (it destroyed the very foundations of religion), and in Communism you simply erase all other forms of “political superstition” (erasing the foundation of “politics”, meaning, of the way things “appear” to us-in social, historical terms). So, being a leftist is engaging is this constant tension between what is there (and perhaps “sacred”, even to you, or to your understanding of the world-in a leftists sense of course) and what is yet to be done. So, clearly, Communism here stands for something that has no existence yet. It belongs always to the future (and never to the past, as something that has to be accomplished). But then, the twist is this: you cannot think in other ways of doing things than the French revolution, or the Soviet and Chinese for instance. We are all imprisoned in that model here (but, what is else to do?). And as Zizek says, the true revolution was not October, but collectivization… I guess this is when we need to punch ourselves in the face really hard, just like in “fight club”? Or here, what he means is: we need to get closer to that model again, despite the sacrifices we’ll make… (?) If you cannot answer that type of questions, you are, indeed (well, in my view), a true Communist… and to make myself clear, that is what I am criticizing on today’s Left.
So these guys the commies dont have any religion like all other do?
It depends, some russian communists for example are orthodoxes.

Syriza are social-democrats who like to pose as socialist. They should just say "Sod off you NATO, IMF and EU bastards, we don't need any of you!", unfortunately they will never do that.
I did the above "guest" comment, sorry for not showing up at the time.
Ivanator95, You're right. Syriza will not go ahead with a classical socialist agenda I'm sure. But for me the old times of reading "Capital" or even the Manifesto are over. Not their principles of course but, the strategy, so to speak. I'm just asking if it's not the time to move on? (don't spit on me yet).
In the last few years I read a lot of Post-marxist thought starting with Lacalu's "Socialist strategy", that puts in perspective a lot of our common beleifs on the "left". I think the classical Marxist-leninist aproach to society is not going to work again (not even the social-democrat, socialist, anarchist, etc.).
Should this be the new fase of marxism?
Hope to see some unity after all. I am also tired of classical sectarism. we know the history of marxism very well to be able to overcome it, and refresh the "Left Tradition". Can we agree on this?
Hi, I've watched the video you linked, and I don't think it shows a "new" face of marxism, since the principals are the same, just a modern method of propagating them. I've not heard about those guys before but I'm glad I've watched it. As long as we are on the same page about anti-imperialism and workers control of the means of production, the left front should be united around those.
Yes, we should be on the same page despite our differences. It's all about bringing the poor to play an active role after all: demos+Kratos.
Some other “instructional” videos about things we all should know:
Fascist model in our future:
Carlo Guiliani and the Carabinieri:
New Maoists of Nepal (I’m still struggling to understand this)
What is “Podemos”?
About our general discourse on the Left (outdated in my view)
What does Syriza want? (and article in Portuguese – just copy paste it on Google translate)
